Elimination Chamber 2014 Rumors [VIDEO]: Update On Main Event, Brock Lesnar Absent? [SPOILERS]
The road to WrestleMania continues with a stop at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view event on Feb. 23 at the Target Center in Minneapolis, and while Brock Lesnar has been featured in storylines, he may not participate at the February event and the WWE may also be making some tweaks to their main event.
According to Wrestlingheadlines.com, as of Monday night's edition of RAW, Lesnar is not slated to appear at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view nor in the Chamber match itself despite the fact that he was hyped up on RAW and the event will take place in his hometown. Lesnar has reportedly fulfilled all of the dates necessary on his contract that expires at WrestleMania XXX where he's expected to face The Undertaker.
Lesnar has re-signed his limited appearances deal through WrestleMania 31, but it doesn't appear as though he'll be at the Elimination Chamber.
The WWE revealed on RAW that Randy Orton will defend his WWE World Heavyweight Championship in the Chamber match against five other superstars. John Cena, Sheamus and Daniel Bryan earned their way in by defeating The Shield in a six-man tag on RAW.
It was revealed on Tuesday night's SmackDown tapings that Christian and Antonio Cesaro will round out the field as Christian defeated Jack Swagger to get in and Cesaro overcame Dolph Ziggler to earn his slot in the match.
Regarding Christian, Wrestlingheadlines.com reports that he is planned to be in the match at this point but it isn't definite as it could be changed. According to the report, the spot was given to Christian with the idea that if the WWE comes up with someone else to replace him, he will be attacked backstage and then replaced in the match due to "injury."
The report indicates that currently there is no one planned to take out Christian but it is still an option if the WWE decides to take the newly returned superstar out of the match. Another rumored match for the show is a contest pitting Alberto Del Rio against Batista.
The WWE also revealed that The Wyatts will take on The Shield in a six-man tag team match.
It appears as though Lesnar won't be at the event and Christian may be taken out of the main event match when the WWE's Elimination Chamber airs live from the Target Center in Minneapolis on Feb. 24.
